'''Hydropower''' is power that is derived from the force or energy of moving water, be it from the sea or from freshwater sources. It can be used to do [[mechanical]] work, or to generate electricity.
A '''hydro energy conversion system''' (HECS),<ref>[http://www.routledge.com/books/Energy-Harvesting-isbn9781439815083 Hydro and Ocean energy conversion system terms]</ref> or '''hydro energy harvester''' is the term for the machine used to generate this mechanical or electrical energy from the captured energy of moving water.
